Challenges

Analyzing labor costs and performance was challenging for Constellation Brands, the world’s leading premium wine producer. Although the company’s automated timekeeping solution provided timely and accurate information, the solution couldn’t easily generate key performance indicators for individual employees, departments, and facilities or across the organization. Without this information, determining the right number of hours — regular and overtime — needed to produce each product was difficult.

What Constellation Brands needed was a solution that could:

  • Deliver real-time data to maximize production and control labor costs
  • Create a culture of accountability with engaged employees
  • Help the company predict future costs and spending risk
“Our ability to manage labor is critical to how we run our business, and Workforce Analytics allows us to do this.”
